#553262 Pretty Excited, Going Back To School!

Posted by on 08 August 2009 - 07:07 AM

Good for you! When my son was 18 months old I decided to go back to school to finish my B.S. in education. It was hard. I worked during the day and went to class at night but my mom kept my son during the day and my husband was home at night. That made it a bit easier. I knew he was in good hands so I wasn't as consumed with guilt about being gone so much. This will be my 7th year teaching and I love it. Going back to school was the best decision I ever made! Good luck!

#508499 I Found My Diagnosis Not My Doctor, And It Bothers Him.

Posted by on 05 February 2009 - 04:04 PM

Some doctors are a joke. Mine certainly is. When I went in to have my Celiac bloodtests done he told me he only tests the elderly for Celiac. When I told him my young son was diagnosed he acted like he didn't believe it. When I tried to change doctors word must have gotten back to him. His office called me and asked why I wanted to make an appointment with this other doctor.

#493197 Anyone Unemployed Or Divorced Because Of Celiac?

Posted by on 16 December 2008 - 09:57 AM

My husband doesn't get it and his ignorance makes me furious. He thinks it's all in my head and has told me several times to "get over it". He thinks my symptoms came on suddenly because I never complained until after our son was dx. But, what he doesn't understand is that I thought the way I was feeling was normal. I did not know what it felt like to feel well. I had never had a "normal" bowel movement. It was one extreme or the other. I thought having a headache all day was a way of life for me. I thought taking naps everyday was fine. When our son was dx in March it was like a lightbulb going off for me. After countless hours of researching Celiac for my son's sake, I discovered an answer to my own health problems. My husband thinks I am nuts, especially since my blood tests came back negative. He has not educated himself on Celiac and I always ask him what he would do if something happened to me and he had to take care of our son on his own. We have discussed divorce and I tell him that I would fight for full custody because he could not take care of our son properly. It's a sad situation that I hope will improve.

#480660 gluten-free Items/meal Ideas You Can Find At Any Grocery Store/target, Etc.

Posted by on 01 November 2008 - 11:48 AM

I always keep chicken breasts in the freezer and when I know we will have a crazy day and won't have much time to cook dinner I throw the chicken breasts into the crockpot with 1/2 bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. By the time we come home dinner is ready! Cheeseburgers are quick and easy (we eat them bunless). I make "mommy helper". It's Tinkyada elbow macaroni, Ragu double cheddar sauce, and a lb of ground beef. As quick as Hamburger Helper only gluten free. Walmart's Great Value brand will say gluten-free on the package if it is. That has helped make my grocery trips a lot faster.
